Upcoming Fiber Arts Classes
Fiber Arts Department
Instructor: Linda V. Hubbard
Learn the basics by dropping your feed dogs and, using free-motion machine stitching to create visual and textural effects on fabric. Discover how liberating it is to stitch “free-style” and “draw” on fabric. You will follow your own design instincts while developing free-motion stitching skills that you can use in traditional quilting, art quilts and other stitched projects. During the workshop you will begin building a “Stitch Library” while practicing stitching exercises that you will keep as a permanent reference tool (and which you can add to over time).
Techniques explored will be Thread Sketching, Thread Painting, Textural, Dimensional and Structural Stitching which will help you develop confidence in continuous, improvisational, free-motion stitching including the challenge of how to get to where you want to go in your design – ideally without stopping.
The goal of this workshop is to learn how to let your creative instincts emerge as you stitch and develop good free-motion habits that work for you. Skill level: Students must know how to sew.
